About the Programme

All new police recruits must be qualified to degree level. This, combined with government commitment to raise the number of police officers, means you'll have excellent employment opportunities after graduation.

We work closely with Humberside Police to ensure that you will have the opportunity to apply to become a Special Constable or Police Service Volunteer - meaning that you can gain first-hand experience of policing while studying. By training as a Special Constable alongside your degree, you'll get a taster of life as a police officer, and be ready to start your career after graduating.

The Professional Policing programme of the University of Hull  is designed to give you the knowledge, skills and behaviours for a career in the police service. You’ll also benefit from our strong partnerships with local, regional and national criminal justice agencies. This means we can offer you stimulating evidence-based policing project opportunities, as well as field trips to courts, police stations and prisons.

Put what you learn into practice in our purpose-built replica crime scene facility right here on campus. A recent addition to the university, it provides detailed and realistic crime scenes for you to explore. Get hands on: collect evidence, explore criminal activity and see the world of forensic science brought to life.

Our expert staff each have their own relevant research specialisms – from modern-day slavery to knife crime and from domestic violence to crimes against the environment and hate crime. They design the modules with you in mind –their research powering their teaching.
